How to be humble

These are the few ways we can practice humility:

To speak as little as possible of one's self.

To mind one's own business

Not want to manage other people's affairs

To avoid curiosity

To accept contradictions and correction cheerfully

To pass over the mistakes of others

To accept insults and injuries

To accept being slighted, forgotten and disliked.

To be kind and gentle even under provocation

Never to stand on one's dignity.

To choose always the hardest

- extract from Mother Teresa, The Joy in Loving: A Guide to Daily Living
